According to SkySports, Tottenham are considering a move for Tenerife goalkeeper Carlos Abad.

Abad, who spent the last two seasons on loan at Real Madrid’s youth team Castilla, was available to buy at £3 million, which is mere spare change for the Spanish giants.

In spite of the low fee and impressive performances, Real Madrid decided not to activate the 21 year old’s buy-out clause and now, according to reports from Marca, Tottenham are contemplating a move for the ‘keeper.

Earlier in the month, it was reported that Tottenham and Espanyol had failed to reach an agreement over a transfer fee for 22 year old Spanish goalkeeper Pau Lopez, who’d spent all of last season on loan at White Hart Lane.

According to reports, Tottenham rejected an opportunity to sign Lopez in January, in the hopes of signing him at a cheaper price in the Summer, however Spurs were still eventually unwilling to match the Spanish club’s £7 million price-tag.

Not only is he younger at 21, but Carlos Abad additionally presents a cheaper alternative that Tottenham may have been waiting for, at just £3 million.
